XF 1.4 Sidebar


The current sidebar is very limited and I feel more things can be added to it. I found an excellent thread but It is 5 years old and most of the add-ons no longer work.

What I want is, a way of adding Latest Threads or Popular Threads into the sidebar. I also want Faceboot/Twitter/Social Media icons and more.

Is there any custom code or add-ons that can do these?

Most of what you want is in the box with that but many people including myself create custom widgets for the framework which is also something you can do yourself with some basic skills and some initiative.

The framework also allows you to control the order and conditions for when any particular sidebar block displays as well as adding a widget page node type which can also optionally be used for a custom landing page.
